Bordeaux Airport evacuated: Hundreds of holidaymakers rushed out of busy French airport | World | News

Police have raced to the scene in south-west France with witnesses claiming flights have been diverted. Some added the reason for the evacuation is a suspicious package. This is yet to be confirmed.

One angry flyer was due to travel on an EasyJet plane.

The passenger said in a direct post to the airline: “Stuck at Bordeaux airport after flight was diverted from Biarritz last minute.

“After an hour there has been one bus, enough for about a third of the people.

“No representation here and no idea if anymore buses are coming. What are you doing about it?”

Another said: “Just been evacuated from Bordeaux Airport, due to suspect package that has been found.”

A third added: “#bordeauxairport airport evacuated ! Yeah what a way to end the holidays.”

Passengers have also shared images of hundreds of people outside the airport waiting to be allowed back inside. 

This is a breaking news story.
